There’s no need for compromise on staying warm and cosy when it comes to being stylish. This year’s winter trends are all about adaptability. Clothing articles have moulded themselves into looking fashionable and feeling comfy, for example, puffer jackets or loose wide-leg jeans. Having a certain set of staples in your closet will make sure that your style quotient remains high at all times. Mix and match these versatile pieces and you’ll always have an outfit ready for you!

Let’s have a look at some wardrobe essentials this winter:

1. Knitwear

Now I know that this one is quite obvious, but it is essential after all! Knitwear not only feels like you’re getting a warm hug but also looks super cute. From sweaters to cardigans, and even dresses, knitwear has plenty of options for you to pick from. These items are extremely versatile, you could dress it up with some leather pants and heels or keep it casual for the warmer days with a denim skirt and sneakers.

2. Bodysuits

Bodysuits are an absolute must-have for this winter season. When you are layering you want your clothes to be nicely tucked in without looking bulky and uncomfortable, bodysuits are perfect for this. They don’t budge and give you a smooth and slim silhouette all in one. I mean, who wouldn’t love that? All you need are some basic colours like white, black or nudes. The styles can range from a plain long sleeve to turtlenecks in multiple different textures, no matter what these are sure to elevate your look.

3. Leather Pants

Leather has been a huge hit this year. Earlier, even thinking about leather pants used to seem uncomfortable. Since then they have had a huge glow up and we’re here for it! The inside of these pants is usually lined with a soft material to keep us snug. Leather pants don’t only have to be skinny, there is wide leg, straight cut, jogger-style options for you to choose from now. Just throw on a pair of these pants, pick a cute top or a sweater, put on some boots and you’re good to go!

4. Coats And Jackets

When you think of winter immediately jackets and coats come into your mind. The layering pieces are absolute wardrobe necessities! Throwing on a jacket on any look, be it a plain dress or a denim outfit, can instantly amp up the style factor. Having basics like a leather jacket, a trench coat, a denim jacket or a bomber style jacket can spice up any outfit. You could also go in the bold direction and choose bright colours or unique prints.

5. Jeans

Want a stylish look with minimum effort? It all goes down to a good pair of jeans. Breaking away from the skinny jeans phase was hard, but we finally have a plethora of styles to choose from now. Remember, comfort is key so consider making high-rise, distressed, wide leg and straight-leg styles the new denim default in your wardrobe. Pair it with your knitwear or do some layering with jackets, either way, it’s bound to look fabulous.

6. Boots

Who doesn’t love a pair of boots? Black boots, heel boots, knee-high boots, we want them all! Realistically though, a pair of black boots in your closet can do wonders for your outfits. They add character and make you look chic and sophisticated. You could even make a statement with some funky boots that are vibrant in colour or have prints on them. Style it with jeans, a basic top and a leather jacket and you’ve got a fashionable outfit in no time.

7. Co-ord Sets

If you are someone who never knows what to wear co-ord sets are the way to go. There’s no need to sit and stare at your wardrobe wondering what goes with what anymore. Just slip into a set and you’re ready. Sweat pant sets and loungewear sets started off as a pandemic, work-from-home staple, but now they have worked their way into everyday fashion. If you want a more decked up look, pantsuit sets are the way to go. Style it with some heels and channel your inner girl boss!
